In last week's article I told you about a bit older lens I came across which I planned to review. The lens in question was the Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro, the subject of today's article. There is fierce competition in this slot (~100mm macro lenses), including various macro lenses from Sigmaand Tamron, plus Nikon's own options. There seems to be something for everyone here, so where does Tokina's 100mm stand in all that?
|Beautiful bokeh, backgrounds are very smooth|
+ optically perfect, period.
+ great value; you get lots of goodness without spending much.
+ AF is accurate and rather fast for a macro.
